123pp , white pictoral covers, slightly grubby, pages lightly browned, crease across top corner of front cover, internally some odd foxing. This book has no pretentions to be a 'Definitive' history of the city. It is the story of a city, albeit a special city. It is an attempt to draw a profile of Cork. Cork like most Irish towns and cities just grew up. It was not planned, in fact one might say that it was this very spontaneity which has contributed more than anything else to the formation of its character, a character which would prompt Desmond MacNamara in The New Statesman to call it 'a city of tattered grace, probably the most seductive and loquacious in Western Europe'. Sean Beecher has tried to reflect the personality of Cork people by showing how, they and the countless generations of Cork inhabitants have created the city.
